Besides Bedtime

Most parents are willing to read to or with their children at bedtime.
It's a natural choice to slow things down. Calm down those bodies. Wind down those brains.
Preparing for a good night's sleep is essential and we're pretty good at using books to help us.

What other times during the day do you read to your kids?

Do you start the day off with a "wake up" book?

Do you read at the table after meals?

Do you use car time for books (iPad versions)?
Do you take books outside?

Our days are full. We can't imagine squeezing one more thing into them.
Will you give it a try?

Reading together is a great way to take a break that brings us closer. We can share a laugh or a sigh depending on the story. No matter when. No matter where.
